[AAS07-P01] Top-down estimation of terrestrial CO2 flux in Northern Eurasia
Keywords:CO2, carbon flux, inverse modeling, greenhouse gas, Siberia, climate change
In order to examine the impact of additional observational constraints in Siberia, we compared the inversion results with and without JR-STATION data. For the entire period, estimated global land fluxes agreed well with each other regardless of JR-STATION data. At regional scales, estimated fluxes showed significant difference mostly in Siberia and northeastern Europe. When focusing on the mean seasonal variations, summer uptake increased in western Siberia and northeastern Europe whereas it decreased in northeastern Siberia by adding JR-STATION data.
In terms of the long-term trend, the terrestrial sink was increasing both in Siberia and in Europe. Terrestrial CO2 fluxes estimated for Siberia using JR-STATION data is -0.88 ±0.55 GtCyr-1 and -1.36 ±0.42 GtCyr-1 over the period 2002-2009 and 2010-2015, respectively. Those for Europe is -0.19 ±0.43 GtCyr-1 and -0.42 ±0.30 GtCyr-1, respectively. The increasing trend of the carbon sink in northern boreal areas can be explained by the combination of warming climate and the fertilization effect . Time series of these fluxes also reflect the effect of ENSO and extreme weather conditions. The interpretation of the multi-year variation of estimated fluxes in northern Eurasia will be presented.
